I'd go with DoZer on this one. The blue GW brushes were reasonable - but I've gone through five fine detail brushes of the new type already (and I look after them). I'm currently using my older blue brushes - but they are beginning to wear thin. I might check out these reaper brushes.

Umm sorry I think there's been some confusion, that was the brush I used to paint most of my cruddily painted orcs & goblins BEFORE I was taken pity on and got a cheap new brush for Christmas, no "master kiwi" Embarassed the models look almost as bad as the brush.
No way am I ever sharing pictures of my green stuffing tools with you they're kinda rusty.

@ 02Laney No only the undead at the moment, I'm hoping to get some of those stormtrooper models though.

Three cheers for us having a bake sale to raise money to get master kiwi some new brushes! I have some brushes that look like that. They were my dad's modeling brushes from the 60's.

To Order

Winsor Newton Series 7 Miniatures Brushes
The best.

I don't use the series 7 ones yet but I plan on getting them when i have some money again. I use the Winsor Newton Arcylic brushes that where avaliable at Crafts 2000. Not as good but they work ok till i can get the new ones.

The problem that im having with the arcylic brushes is they are synthetic and have a tendancy to curve at the tip for some reason (no i don' tleave my brushes in water and i store them flat. I don't understand but oh well.

DUDE... the FACT you painted with that brush makes you "The Official Poster-Boy for Brush Care Month!"

Enjoy the INFAMY... Master Kiwi.

That's a problem almost all synthetic brushes have in common. No idea why but it's the main reason I stick with natural hair brushes.

I'm going to get a new brush! Nothing special just one from the local craft store. I already have a size1 brush, any recommendations as to what type I should get?

@ Mordheimer I'm curious now.....

Thread Necromancy! POOF!

Was just curious what Kiwi's sig was about, hehe. Wink

Anyway, if anyone is looking for good brushes, I suggest Da Vinci. I'm like Skraag when it comes to painting. I use a larger brush for just about anything, because it holds more paint than the smaller ones. Then I use a detail brush for eyes and stuff.

As he said earlier in this thread: as long as the tip is good, you need a tiny brush to pull off accurate painting. Just get a good brush!

And, and on synthetics: my tips keep curving, too! Da Vinci is organic stuff. Even though the local store recommended synthetic for acrylics, I find the organic brushes to be much better.

Kiwi deleted his SIG!!! Booooohhhhh!!!!

hehehe check out THIS... ghehehehe... http://www.deathsquadsgame.com/t994-caring-for-brushes-master-kiwi

We were giving Kiwi a hard time. He was saying how hard was for him to sculpt and paint (like we all do) when suddenly he posted his 1st attempt to sculpt a hat... a MASTER PIECE! The he made the 'mistake' of posting a picture of his brushes... heheheh... after we gave him a hard time, and he changed his brush only to show how AWESOME painter he is. Hehehehe... all in good fun.

I did?

I really find painting a lot easier with a detail brush not that I've been doing a whole lot lately. Though I might start a new squad, I managed to pick up the last chancers for the price of a box of cadian shock troops!

Yeah... my bad!

Kiwi is cool... he has more painting talent in his pinky that I will get in a life-time. Now that he 'discovered' that it is easier to paint with GOOD brushes, 'Eavy Metal should start making some space for him in 5 years! Wink
